AFCP Annual Forum in association with East of England Agricultural Society- 5 November 2019
'Education - the essential farming and foodchain input' at the East of England Showground, Peterborough.
Education in farming and food production is vital for the future of the industry. The AFCP 2019 Forum provides the opportunity to learn about, and discuss, the subject – from giving children an understanding of where our food comes from to inspiring exciting new research into producing more food in ways that will also benefit our planet.
AFCP Student Forum was held on 11 April 2019 at University of Reading
Many thanks to all who presented and attended this very successful event, giving agrifood students a chance to meet their peers and industry colleagues, and learn more about the broad scope of the work being undertaken in the wider agricultural field. Thanks too to University of Reading for hosting the day.
Thirty AFCP Charity funded students attended to make presentations or participate in the poster session. Many of the posters are available here.
AFCP Eastern Region Soils Event took place early in March. See presentations from some of our charity funded students, NIAB, AHDB and Morley on soil research topics.
